    This museum is in midtown Atlanta and the surroundings are so pretty. Really liked this place! Lots of exhibits ranging from dinosaurs, mammals and whales to pottery.

    Was worth it to hear the Georgia Boys Choir. Check their schedule of events. Nature Quest could have kept my toddler happy for hours! Don't miss making bubbles in the Sensory area.

    Did you know? Fernbank was named by a young girl named Emily who played in the woodlands during her childhood in the 19th century. She was inspired by the forest to become a naturalist and educator. Read more

    For the fare you get a modern light and airy coliseum-like atrium that is accented by outdated and unimaginative exhibits that feel as if they predate the building itself
